sanchez and olson are the closest to the majors. They may not get much help for a couple of years though since Flo. lineup might be kind of thin, though hermida, mcab, willingham, jacobs, ramirez, could develop quick

It probably depends. You didn't provide any details about your situation.

If you really could use a good OF bat down the line and can wait >=3 years, Maybin might be a good choice over those pitchers.

Otherwise, I guess I'd probably go w/ Olsen also even though some, if not all, of those other pitchers have equal or better upside. I think I'd probably go w/ Maybin before most of the other pitchers though.
Just another amateur learning to paint w/ "the light of the world".

If I saw your lineup I'd tell you.

If you want someone RIGHT now its gotta be Olsen, he'll get you Ks but not much else.

If you need a closer Bailey is very good but the entire pen is kinda muddy over there soits high risk IMO.

Before the injury I would have said Adam Miller in a heart beat. I still believe he will recover to be a great pitcher and I think if you have time (3-4 years) I would still take Miller out of the group.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I agree here with this assessment. If you were to provide some information about your league, your current roster, and your draft status it would help immensely. ;-)

I would rate these players as such:

Scott Olsen
Anibal Sanchez
Cameron Maybin
Homer Bailey
Phillip Hughes
Adam Miller


List your team roster and provide some more information on your league. ;-D

Pretty good list, though personally I'm not as big on Sanchez and would probably move him down a few spots.
